CIAT’s 2017 International Roadshow finished its UK leg in style with an event at Twickenham Stadium.
The event was attended by leading heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) contractors, installers, end users and building services consultants from across the capital and beyond. The Twickenham event was the last in the UK for CIAT, who visited eight cities across the length and breadth of the country. But that’s just a portion of the company’s mammoth pan-continental technology tour – CIAT is taking a nine-month, 25,000-mile trip across Europe and North Africa, including stops in Morocco, Turkey and Russia, to connect with customers and highlight their newest product developments and comprehensive system offerings.
At Twickenham, CIAT and sister company Toshiba Air Conditioning shared the prestigious stadium platform for the launch of Toshiba’s latest 3-pipe heat recovery VRF system, SHRM-e. This was followed by a briefing on upcoming Toshiba product developments. Among those officiating the launch and welcoming visitors were Ross Shuster, president of International Operations for UTC Climate, Controls & Security, and David Dunn, director and general manager of CIAT and Toshiba Air Conditioning, as well as many senior colleagues. Dunn said: “Twickenham provided a fitting culmination to CIAT’s UK grand tour 2017, and a not-to-be-missed opportunity to roll-out Toshiba’s latest and greatest VRF system to key customers, consultants and end users.” “This inspirational and iconic venue reflects our own values as a company, in terms of approach, professionalism, respect and commitment. It was a fitting location to introduce the most recent innovative products from both companies and share our future product plans with customers.”
The day concluded with a gala dinner in the Members’ Lounge with guests entertained by a panel of superstars from the world of rugby, including former England captain Will Carling, Scottish rugby legend Gavin Hastings, Welsh stars Scott Quinnell and Jamie Roberts, and Irish national player Gordon D’Arcy.
